This course will take place in food&lab in the CAB building (same location as Social 3 taught by Irina & Tim), except for the lesson on May 1st: it will take place in CAB F21 (StuZ)

During the social courses, we will teach you the basics of ballroom dancing. Ballroom dances are partner dances that are mainly popular in Europe and consist of two categories: Standard and Latin.

What you are going to learn

With Samba, you are going to learn one new Latin dance. Additionally, we will learn the reverse turn in Viennese Waltz and introduce new figures for Tango, Quickstep, Cha Cha, Rumba and Jive.
